      Moreover, God is one, and that’s why He has his own will! Christians are talking about separate identities, each of whom has its own will, so there’s no meaning in believing in one God. You have detached the oneness of God from its meaning because of your absurd language which is not found in your gospels to begin with! That’s why christians cannot engage in a meaningful debate with polytheists about how importance to belive in one God. The oneness of God has its own implications, yet christians cannot build their case on those implications because they are not found in their belief. It’s just a saying!
      Remember my brothers, the belief in one God is the Most important teaching according to Jesus in the gospel.
      Finally, what are christians going to say about the holy spirit according to their interpretation for (John 16:13)? “He will not speak on his own”?! Imagine! God cannot speak on his own!?

      • It really doesn’t make sense. By saying “he laid aside temporally the use of His divine powers”, you are emptying the real understanding of what God is, which involves necessarily that He’s all Knowing and all Powerful. If he emptied himself from these attributes, He’s not God necessarily. You cannot spin around this fact.
        Do you remember how Elijah mocked the false prophets and their gods?
        Let me remind you,
        “About noontime Elijah began mocking them. “You’ll have to shout louder,” he scoffed, “for surely he is a god! Perhaps he is daydreaming, or is relieving himself. Or maybe he is away on a trip, or is asleep and needs to be wakened!”
        Surely if Elijah had had the same understanding of christians about God,
        his argument and mockery against those false gods would’ve been meaningless!
        Also, as far as I know that christians with their absurd and nonsensical belief insist that Jesus is (fully) God even when he’s on earth. That’s why I emphasis agains that christians don’t have a real argument against polytheists to affirm the most important teaching according to Jesus. They cannot engage with polytheists as Elijah did. It’s only muslims, who have inherited legally the religion of Abraham, who can defend this belief.
        Finally, again what about the holy spirit? The holy spirit doesn’t know the hour, and it’s obvious he has not absolute authority as we expect from God. What are christians going to say about the holy spirit according to their interpretation for (John 16:13)? “He will not speak on his own”?! Imagine! God cannot speak on his own!?

        John 16:13 is talking about the Unity of the 3 persons, the unity of the Holy Spirit with the Father. The meaning is that He does not go off on His own without harmony and unity with the Father and the Son.

        I know! That’s why you cannot engage with polytheists as Elijah did. Only muslims can do that.

        //before the incarnation of Jesus the Son, and the Father is still in heaven while the Son was on earth for 33 years.//
        That’s just non sequitur. You read that passage backwardly, and this christian reading doesn’t really bear any value. In fact, the saying of Jesus we are talking about cannot be read like this unless you prove that jewish audience Jesus was speaking to had already known that God would put his power aside, which is impossible

        //He does not go off on His own without harmony //
        Harmony? hahahah! This “harmony” involves that one god has to have more authority than the other one, which necessarily would roll out one of them in favor of another one to be the absolute one true God. If you say they are equal, then you would not find this harmony in creation and universe which indicates to the one true God. You see, muslims can easily refute polytheists who believe in many gods who work in harmony. You cannot escape this fact. In fact, Qur’an has already refuted this idea and its implications that christians cannot escape from
        “In fact, We have given them the truth, and they are liars. God has never begotten a son, nor is there any god besides Him. Otherwise, each god would have taken away what it has created, and some of them would have gained supremacy over others. Glory be to God, far beyond what they describe. The Knower of the hidden and the manifest. He is exalted, far above what they associate.” QT. In sum, in either way, you are in a big trouble theologically.
        Finally, the holy spirit doesn’t know the hour. Why is that? Isn’t he all knowing? Obviously not.

        No, Ken, this is not the only definition of shirk it’s only a small component of it. You basically do all major components:

        Shirk in God’s Lordship
        Giving Jesus(as) rulership with God

        Shirk in God’s names and attribute
        By likening God to His creation and giving the creation God’s attributes

        Praying to Jesus or in Jesus’s name

    And he still doesn’t get that they’re saying the same thing in essence:

    Many Hindus believe in Brahman as the ultimate reality – one ‘Supreme Spirit’ in many forms. Brahman is male, female and even animal.

    Brahman is also commonly understood as the Trimurti – three gods with three key functions:

    Brahma – the source of all creation.
    Vishnu – responsible for keeping all good things on Earth and bringing harmony when needed.
    Shiva – assists in the creation of new things – some things have to end for others to begin

    Look at that God has three separate functions

    Incarnations and avatars
    Many Hindus believe that Lord Vishnu has appeared on Earth in human or animal form, called incarnations or avatars. Examples of this include Rama and Krishna who were both princes. Hindus believe they were sent to save the Earth in times of danger.

    Absolutely beautiful answer. To add to what your saying I think one of the issues is not actually proccessing and understanding God’s names and attributes. By saying God “temporarily laid His dive power to the side” make several issues:

    1. He was still doing supernatural things according to the Christian doctrine
    2. More importantly He may no longer describe Himself with that attribute. Foe example, if He laid His powers to the side he is no longer:

    All Knowing, All Seeing, All Hearing etc because there was a point in time (even for a second) when He didn’t know, see, hear etc.

    So by saying this we now we have the case that they don’t value God with His true worth and He is above the things they claim about Him.

        Then he gives his explanation which has more holes in it then Swiss cheese. He talks about the limitations the Son took upon himself. But this is exactly the point. If he takes limitations upon himself then he can’t be fully God. Either he knows or he doesn’t, either he is omnipotent or he’s not, either he is all powerful or he’s not. Saying he is both is a logical self-contradiction. And btw the Holy Spirit doesn’t know either, ONLY the Father, which goes to prove how bogus his attempt at explaining away the evidence of Jesus not being God really is.

        Did you just discribe your own religion? I think you did.
        So was the system of legalism in the OT also harsh and evil? You know cutting of the hand of a woman if she defends her husband if it touched the jewelry of the other person?
        And opression of women? You mean getting your hand cut off like I just described? Or how about the being a slave and getting beaten to a near death experience and the master not being brought to justice if you ‘get up after a day or two’? Or how about bowing down to your husband like the wife of Abraham? Or how about not being allowed to divorce your husband unless he is unchaste which means a husband that beats the living crap out of her everyday is a man she has to live with for the remaining days of his or her life.
        Hypocrisy? You mean like the rules in your so called holy book of God?
        And when you mention the agressive wars do you mean the literal bloodbaths xtians made throughout history like the countless of genocides? How about the country you live which was stolen by comitting the worst genocide ever and then building it up on the blood and bones of African slaves? You know ‘the greatest country in the world’?
        And the lack of looking at itself and being honest about the problems it has within it is the perfect discription that fits your cult. Look at the countless of errors and contradiction. Look at the lies it tells. Authors lying about their identities, authors who don’t even mention their identity and just editing other so called gospel that came before, authors that were apperantly so horny that they couldn’t help themselves but write horny verses, prophets comitting the WORST crimes EVER like polytheism, genocides, incest, …

        David and his men performing penis surgeries to not just a hundred men but two hundred since David felt it would better to do so. Or how about the WORST thing ever said about God: That he was squeezed out of a woman’s private part with vaginal juices all over him. Astaferlah!!! And these ‘people’ have the audacity to tell us who God is.

The writers of the Simpsons are brave making fun of a caricature of Christianity, but it was just a simplistic caricature full of falsehoods. But they are not brave enough to do that with Islam.

      The cartoon scene that shows Jesus on the swing set and apparently emotionally damaged as if in a mental institution is certainly an insult to the powerful resurrection and the powerful scenes of him in his ascension and glory in Revelation chapter 5 – He certainly is not weak and struggling now, According to the Scriptures he is powerful and will one day come again as the judge who will judge the living and the dead and will make a just war and will pour out judgment and retribution on all who do not except him as their Lord and Savior.

    Yes we believe in Judgment Day, Heaven and Hell, etc (this actually in our articles of faith) I did not say being a judge is vengeful and petty or being prone to error I say verses such as this are:

    6And the LORD regretted that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him in His heart. 7So the LORD said, “I will blot out man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—every man and beast and crawling creature and bird of the air—for I am grieved that I have made them.” (Genesis 6:6-7)

    Basically: Waaa!!! You guys don’t ever listen. Waaaa! I’m going to just destroy you even though I’m supposed to be omnipotent and know you would be like this when I created you. Waaaa!!!

    “I regret that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from me and has not carried out my instructions.” Samuel was angry, and he cried out to the LORD all that night.

    Same thing: Waaa!!! Saul, why did I appoint you King? Waaa! You don’t listen. Waaaa!!!

    Or killing innocent parties like David’s(as) (and I seek refuge from God) alleged bastard child and letting him go free with murder? (2 Samuel 12)

    So He forgave David(as) who should have been stoned to death a per HIS law and killed an innocent party instead as punishment.

    There’s a variety of blasphemous stories such as this but the point has been made. God is above many of the attributes that the Bible displays Him as having it describes God in a simialar vein as the cartoon to us. For example compare God “regretting making humans” to:

    O My servants, I have forbidden oppression for Myself and have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another. O My servants, all of you are astray except for those I have guided, so seek guidance from Me and I shall guide you… O My servants, you sin by night and by day, and I forgive all sins, so seek forgiveness from Me and I shall forgive you. O My servants, you will not attain harming Me so as to harm Me, and will not attain benefitting Me so as to benefit Me. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as pious as the most pious heart of any one man of you, that would not increase My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to be as wicked as the most wicked heart of any one man of you, that would not decrease My kingdom in anything. O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you, the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place and make a request of Me, and were I to give everyone what he requested, that would not decrease what I have, any more that a needle decreases the sea if put into it. O My servants, it is but your deeds that I reckon up for you and then recompense you for, so let him who finds good, praise God, and let him who finds other than that, blame no one but himself.

    https://sunnah.com/qudsi40

    God is saying basically even if you were all the most good of the good or the evilest of the evil this does not benefit or harm Me in any way. You worship for your own sake as this is what you were created to do and is your purpose. Finally and this is important you have a guarantee of NOTHING and it’s arrogant to say that. You don’t know what you will die on. Notice God said, “all of you are astray except for those I have guided”. God could cause an event to happen tomorrow that alters your heart and you become an atheist, die on disbelief and enter Hell. People who talk like this are the ones who are most misguided, God says describing believers:

    70:27. Who fear their Lord’s warning,
    70:28. because the torment of their Lord is not a thing to feel safe from.

    And in another place describing disbelievers in destroyed nations:

    7:97. Did the people of those cities feel safe that My punishment would never come to them in the middle of the night while they were sleeping?
    7:98. Did the people of those cities feel safe that My punishment would never come to them in the middle of a sunny day while they were playing?
    7:99. Did they feel safe against God’s plan? Because it’s only the losers feel safe against God’s plan.

      Thank you for this. This is bad. The True God (the God of the Bible) does not have to command Himself to not do oppression or injustice. He cannot sin or lie or do oppression by nature. God cannot do anything against His nature.

      So, you have a very low “god”; and very weak and crazy character.

      Thank you for supplying that text. It is obvious which God is the true God – the God of the Bible, the Holy Trinity.

      The proud one -المتکبر
      The one who forces, the enforcer – الجبار

      Yes, I know Al-Jabbar is cognate with “Ha-Gibbor” הגבר, but the character of the true God in the Bible has the balance of Almighty power and compassionate love and kindness and mercy. There is just not much mercy or love in Allah, even though your book claims it; not much evidence for it, given the Qur’an, Hadith, and history of Islam.

        Well, you refuted your own point I didn’t even know that so thanks for the info lol.

        Anyways your lack of love comment is purely conjecture and since you have offered no proof or basis for the claim I don’t really need to refute it. So let’s keep it simple with a you’re wrong?

        Moving on, you and I both know your last comment was a reach but I’ll just touch on the subject. God is able to do all things if He wished to be a tyrant He could do that and none could stop Him. He simply chooses not to because as you said: “it is not a godly attribute”. This would fall under the same category as He would not be a fool or become a human, in the same way, He is only Just which is what is being emphasized in the statement “I have forbidden oppression for Myself”. He is stating He will never do this thing and since He has forbidden it for Himself YOU humans have less right to do it.

        On the other hand, what is described in the Bible about God is very unjust and oppressive (case in point the baby being killed instead of the guilty party, Jesus supposedly being killed for the sins of others and we can add in pretty much ALL of what Joshua is described as doing to the Cannitites. Low and crazy character is these pagan authors alleged “phenomenological language” about God which basically makes Him act like a grumpy old man, not an omnipotent being. This anthropomorphism in no way, shape or form imparts “easy to understand language” (it actually does the opposite and makes Him like the Creation).

    Then God is not watching the world according to the author of Habakkuk’s foolish statement. Both good and evil happen by God’s permission. He allows evil for the good that will ultimately be brought. Both these things He is the ultimate source of. He has stated clearly He does not oppress so your entire point is quite frankly silly.

    Finally, let me just do a refutation and show you where God lied in the Bible:

    Adam’s(as) command:
    …16And the LORD God commanded him, “You may eat freely from every tree of the garden, 17but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die.”

    Satan (really the actual animal, the snake) says:

    1Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat of any tree in the garden?’”

    2The woman answered the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden, 3but of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You must not eat of it or touch it, or you will die.’”

    4“You will NOT surely die,” the serpent told her. 5“For God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

    6When the woman saw that the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eyes, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom, she took the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

    7And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; so they sewed together fig leaves and made coverings for themselves.

    So God says they will die the same day they eat it, Satan (really an actual snake) says no you won’t you will just have the understanding of right and wrong. So God lied and Satan (really a snake) told the truth. Now in the Quran, the opposite happens:

    God
    2:34. When I told the angels: “Bow down to Adam”. Everyone bowed except Lucifer who adamantly refused. He sought greatness and was from the ungrateful disbelievers.
    2:35. I then said: “Adam, you and your wife stay here in the Garden for a little while, and eat from it carefree. But do not go near this tree, or you will misplace yourself and be among those who do wrong…”

    20:117. Then I said: “Adam, this is an enemy to both you and your wife. Do not let him get you taken out of the garden, so that you are landed in exhaustion and misery.”

    Satan:

    20:120. But Satan whispered to him, saying: “Adam, would you like me to show you the Tree of Everlasting Life and a kingdom that will never decay?”

    7:20. But Satan would whisper to them and then go away, in order to try and expose to them to their covered private parts, saying: “Your Lord only forbid this tree from you to stop you from becoming kings or living here forever…”
    7:21. And he would vow to them: “I’m really just here to be one of your helpful mentors…”
    7:22. He slowly but surely, finally lured them into doing what he wanted. When they both tasted of the tree, what should be kept covered of their privates were exposed to each other and they both instinctively began trying to cover themselves by sticking leaves on their bodies from the Garden. Their Lord then called out to them ˹saying˺: “Didn’t I forbid you both from that tree and tell you that Satan is your sworn enemy?”

    So in the Quranic version, God told the Truth about what would happen and Satan said any lie he could to get them to slip. Just one of the many ways the Quran corrects the corruption. So, on the contrary, you claim God is omnipotent and truthful when according to the Biblical text He is not.

        Romans 8:18-25 explains this also.

        similar to the “go down as enemies of one another” in the Qur’an.
        The Qur’an even affirms that mankind will become sinful, enemies, have hatred, fighting, killing, wars, divorces, anger, etc. as a result of Adam and Eve’s sin.

        QB, Faiz – like your heart that is full of sinful anger and spite.

        original sin that you got from your parents, who going all the way back got it from Adam and Eve.

        So, the Qur’an in a way confirms the doctrine of original sin, even though you try to deny it.

      • 😂 Again, the text in the chapter does not say anything about a spiritual death. It just said “you will die”. The serpent told the truth. Your god didn’t.

      • You have a reading comprehension problem, since them being sent out is a separation from God and God placed Cherubim with a flaming sword to keep humans from their own efforts to get back to God. God had to give grace and come to establish relationship again. Through Christ and grace.

        Basically. But wait it gets even better to let’s look at what Christian Scholars say:

        Cambridge
        in the day that … die] Literally, in the day that Adam ate of the fruit, he did not die. This is one of the minor inconsistencies in the story which are not explained for us. Either we are to assume that, in some fuller version of it, the Lord God was described as “repenting” of the sentence of immediate death, as changing His mind and sparing man in His mercy: or the words “in the day, &c.” are to be regarded as metaphorical, and the doom, “thou shalt surely die,” merely means “thou shalt become mortal.”

        We must not infer from this verse that the Lord God was considered, to have made man other than mortal. It is clear from Genesis 3:22, that man was created a mortal being. Perhaps, in one version of the story, he was intended to eat of the tree of life “and live for ever.”

        https://biblehub.com/commentaries/cambridge/genesis/2.htm

        (So basically a contradiction, corruption or just plain ol’ lie. Let’s now end that “it was a spiritual death excuse)

        Gaebelein’s Annotated Bible
        “Thou shalt surely die” means literally “dying thou shalt die.” This does not mean “eternal death,” but “physical death.”

        https://biblehub.com/commentaries/gsb/genesis/2.htm

        (By the way, them trying to save it with the “implication” of multiple deaths is laughably wrong. This exists in Arabic to emphasize this thing is major. Like for example, “I hit him with a hit” means I punched the crap out of him not there were multiple strikes or in Surah Zazalha “When the Earth is shaken with a shake” means this will be the largest earthquake the world has seen.)

        The question arises: What is meant by the threatening: “In the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Knobel holds the sense to be, that he should die immediately; because the infinitive absolute before the finite verb, he says, expresses the undoubted, the certain, the actual. But notwithstanding this, Adam must have lived quite a long time after the fall. In vain is it attempted to set aside this difficulty either by the rendering to become mortal (Targum, Symmachus, Hieronymus, and others), or by making it that introduction of pain and sorrow into life which goes before death in our conception of it (Calvin, Gerhard, and others). Still less, indeed, can we think of a death-penalty to be positively inflicted (Batav., Tuch, Ewald, and others).

    • Then God is not watching the world according to the author of Habakkuk’s foolish statement. Both good and evil happen by God’s permission. He allows evil for the good that will ultimately be brought.

      Agreed. But the key phrase is “with approval” – which is the meaning of the passage.

      The meaning of the verse is:
      God’s eyes are too pure to look upon evil with approval – Habakkuk 1:13

      But yes, He is sovereign and allows evil to happen, even ordaining / deciding a head of time to allow it for His own good and holy purposes.

  20. most of those modern scholars you quote are not credible and liberal.
    (the Cambridge commentary is not credible because it is liberal garbage.

    The Geneva Study Bible comment is right:

    “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely {m} die.
    (m) By death he means the separation of man from God, who is our life and chief happiness: and also that our disobedience is the cause of it.”

    Genesis 3:23 confirms this is correct.

    It is in the text and context of Genesis 3.

    So your arguments is nuked.

    • Pennywise’s bias and double standards are exposed yet again. Remember when this clown tried to use the Study Quran commentaries, even though no traditional Islamic scholars had the same views as the liberals of the Study Quran?

      Regardless, the text of Genesis is clear. You don’t need commentaries. A talking serpent told the truth.. Kenny’s god did not.

    Why do you feel the need to half quote a verse its:

    Get down as enemies of one another and if guidance comes to you as it no doubt will, whoever follows it will know no fear or sorrow.

    This verse is one of hope not punishment. We are enemies of one another without God’s guidance of the Scripture and sending prophets

    Moving on I addressed this, the “spiritual death” excuse is laughably poor. This type of speech exists in Arabic please watch this clip:

    In Arabic one would say this man was “struck with a strike” to emphasis he was hit really, really, really hard. They are trying to argue basically that the man was hit multiple times. Basically what the verse says is:

    “Adam(as) if you eat from this tree you will die a great death this day”

    That is why all the commentaries I quoted said this was literally a physical death as that is the natural reading. One could even say it implies a violent, tortuous one. Point is the Bible claims God lied and Satan spoke the truth the spirtual death is an after the fact excuse to get around it with Genesis 3:23 not assisting the issue in any way, shape or form
